MISSIONS REPORT 2017
Trinity’s missions endeavors to demonstrate a Passionate Heartbeat for God’s global agenda by empowering and equipping churches, organizations, ministries, ministers, and communities. This includes the establishment of, and/or support to, charitable and humanitarian works, as well as the equipping of pastors and church leadership. Every Trinitarian has a part to play when it comes to missions. When Trinity hosted the eighth triennial World Assemblies of God Congress from March 29-31, 362 Trinitarians availed their time and talents to host the nations. During our annual Missions Convention from March 3-5, Trinitarians young and old were challenged to Embrace God’s Passionate Heartbeat for the Nations by praying, giving and going.
MISSION IMPACT TEAMS In 2017, 258 Trinitarians – 85 going for the first time – sacrificed their time, talents, and treasures by going to Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, and Thailand to share and demonstrate God’s love. Closer to home, two mission teams partnered with Care Community Services Society to bless 30 elderly at CareElderly Senior Activities Centre and 46 children at the Eunos Carehut. In addition to participation by Trinitarians from the English adult service, there were missions trips organized and run by our IGNYTE (youth), Campus, Chinese, and Filipino Ministries. Find out more

TRAINING AND CONSULTATION Trinity continues to equip churches around the world through training and consultation trips. In 2017, our pastors went on 23 trips to eight nations (China, Indonesia, Japan, Poland, Romania, Spain, Taiwan, and Vietnam), strengthening and empowering churches with the TCC Cell Church Model.

TRINITY@JAKARTA REGIONAL CENTER PLANT Trinity@Jakarta is our first regional center plant in this Decade of Expansion, established to reach out to the English-speaking community in Jakarta. Reconnecting with Trinitarians who have returned or relocated to Jakarta, this church plant started with a monthly Church Prayer Meeting on August 2, followed by weekly Bible Seminars on August 4. The hunger for God was so strong that we launched Sunday services on September 3. During this period, we have seen many English-speaking Indonesians join us. Some have even made decisions for Christ! Anchored by two local congregation members, Trinity@Jakarta also started a Young Adults Program on September 16. It hosts bi-monthly Care and Connect events that reach the young adults in Jakarta. 5 7
